Description

Dystopian Literature Genre Introduction : This assignment is the perfect introduction to a dystopian novel study, such as 1984, Handmaid's Tale, Brave New World, The Giver, or Fahrenheit 451. Students are introduced to popular dystopias in pop. culture and must analyze the function of the dystopia.

Our society is obsessed with “Good Places” — places where evil and jealousy and hunger and famine are no more. We’ve sought them out through laws and technology and philosophy and government, but good intentions often fall short, ideals become warped, and society is still a good ways off from perfection.

This assignment asks students to look at "Good Places Gone Bad" in pop. culture by providing both a list of dystopian films/shows and key questions to guide their analysis. This is a perfect lead-in to characteristics of dystopian worlds or to a dystopian unit like Brave New World, The Giver, 1984, or even Handmaid's Tale.
